  1. Combine butter, sugar, and spices in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When the butter mixture is sizzling, add the apples and fry until golden brown and softened.
  2. Remove from heat and pour in desired rum, and flame (carefully!) with a torch or match. Allow the flames to die down before serving.
  3. Spoon hot apples in individual bowls over crumbled shortbread, top with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Serve immediately.
